Russia in the near future: mechanic Georgi invests all of the family's savings in an ageing rocket so that he can finally go on a trip to Mars together with his children. The most important navigation tool is missing however. Will the mission ever take place, and if so, how?
Language: Original with English and German subtitles
Mrs Maria doesn't trust the whole thing and fears for the three children and her husband. He tries in vain to get hold of a gyroscope for navigation, at which point he has an idea. He is busy working on the rocket. After all, he faithfully promised the flight to the children. They set off in the evening. The children have fun, see planets and spaceships. The director and student of the Moscow VGIK film school Pavel Palekhin succeeds in creating a suspense-packed and heart-touching story which takes the form of a mix of styles incorporating the American way of life of the 1960s and an imaginary future world in which film represents an indispensable part of life.
